Handy to town, clean pleasant motel. Friendly helpful hosts, and very reasonably priced. Plenty of room for family in family unit. Within walking distance of cafes and restaurants. Being on a busy one way street a little bit of traffic noise. Would return again next time passing through New Plymouth.

We did a girls weekend and the unit was fine for our needs, four of us. There was a double and single bed in bedroom and two singles in lounge. Facilities were clean and adequate. Close to Pukekura Park and all shopping so it was a good location.

We spent two nights at the Braemar Motor Inn and found, although the motel is quite old, it was clean, comfortable and quite handy to the CBD. The proprietor was very helpful and as we did not have a car was quite prepared to drive us to the nearby local museum and to the bus stop when we were leaving.... More

I stayed in this motel when travelling to New Plymouth. I was running late but the friendly lady at reception did not mind waking up in the middle of the night. After a quick talk, I was offered a single room with Sky TV. The price I paid is less than what's charged by the local backpackers (which I initially... More

I stayed at this Motor Inn when I went on a business trip, I was extremely shocked how run down the room was and the mattress was so old it hung over the base an the leg was broken. I would not go back there again

Really good location, easy walk to town and plenty of parking available. Unit was clean and tidy, towels changed every day of our stay, and bed was comfortable. Décor is dated but ok. Kitchen had basic equipment but only one power point for jug, microwave and toaster to share. We had free wifi which was great and thought the price... More

I stayed at this motel with my overseas visitors for one night on a Saturday. I was very disappointed with the standard of the motel as we had paid a reasonable price for the accommodation. We had a family room which was old and tired, the curtains were missing some hooks and not hung properly, one of the draw curtains... More

I have been coming to the Braemar Motor Inn on and off for a wee while now and can not fault it. It is lovely and the owner is wonderful and the staff are very friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are clean and tidy and very comfortable. My favourite place to stay in New Plymouth. I highly recommend it.

This motel is located slap-bang in the CBD of New Plymouth, a very good location, very handy to the shopping centre, restaurants and supermarkets, the studio flat we stayed in was a fairly spacious flat kept in a very clean and tidy condition, the décor dates back to the 1980's era, but is very well maintained, we had a queen...
